EACH TO BE PRESENTED WITH A LAUREL, AND HEARTY HANDSHAKE: The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts has announced its honorees for 2009, recognizing lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts.

Also being honored are pianist/composer Dave Brubeck; opera singer Grace Bumbry; actor, director, and producer Robert De Niro; and some guy named Bruce Springsteen. Past honorees are listed here.
